I lost quite a few QSOs. For a number of years, the Russia DX was the
same weekend as the Virginia QSO party. In the FCC database, my
callsign was listed as being a Virginia address. For many logging
programs, I would pop up as being a Virginia QSO party multiplier and
casual ops who were focusing their efforts on the Virginia QSO party
would work me for a QSO. There, I lost points, which is absolutely
Casual ops are the bread and butter of DX contest stations and
discouraging them doesn't send a very good message.

So I worked a number of guys in the Sprint, exchanging serial numbers as part of the exchange. (A few wondered how I was running up such a big number.) I lost quite a few of the Sprint QSOs in the RDXC log checking, though not all. I never followed up to see how or why the QSOs were dropped.

>> RDXC was a major qualifying contest for WRTC-2010. Southwest New Mexico, at the bottom of the sunspot cycle, was a terrible place to try to work the Europe-centric RDXC. The only way to come up with a big score was to spend most of the daytime hours on 20 SSB, in the general class band, working many, many random, "not in the contest" folks. Of course, none of them sent in their log. In the log checking, I did not lose any QSO's working these folks. They made up over 50% of my total QSO's, and I greatly appreciate them.
